“Fiji Kava is not aware of any reason why the trading halt should not be granted,” Mr Stephenson said.

Fiji Kava debuted on the ASX late 2018 following an initial public offer, on the heels of strong support from the institutional and retail shareholders in Fiji and Australia, earlier reports said.

At the time of its listing, Fiji Kava said it was further aided by investment from Strategic Global Funds and Fijian distribution partner Jack’s of Fiji.
